(ANSA) – BERLIN, 02 JUN – Berlin blocks the flights of Russian airlines arriving in the Federal Republic, responding to Moscow’s refusal to authorize Lufthansa flights. According to the AFP, the German Ministry of Transport, which announced the decision in a statement, invoked the principle of “reciprocity” to justify the choice, which takes place in the context of tensions over the Belarusian question.
“In line with the practice of reciprocity, the Federal Aviation Authority does not issue further permits for flights operated by Russian airlines until the authorizations are suspended on the Russian side,” the statement said. (HANDLE).
